So many wonderful internet offerings this week. Here's my happy list:
Band of Wild Petticoats provides two posts ( here and here ) on 18th century Brazilian-Portuguese playright Antônio José da Silva, and his dangerously seditious stories;Obras do diabinho da mão furada, roughly translated as: Tales of the devil with the pierced hand. Hold on to your hats -- it's a brawl.
The Fall, 2013 Issue of Goblin Fruit has a terrific poem by Lynette Mejia, "As Above, So Below" which you can both read in text and listen to the poet read her work. Mejia gives a wonderful reading -- well worth putting your head phones on for this one.
Once Upon A Blog gives us a peek into Annie Leibovitz's photo shoot of Disney heroine "Merida" and an introduction to a real life Merida -- red-haired Virginia Hankins, stunt woman and archer. As always, Once Upon a Blog provides the best posts on what's happening with fairy tales in the media.
Junk Head I : An animated horror (light horror -- some monster chomping) film created over the last four years by a single artist/film maker, Takahide Hori. You can read all about how he made the film (and consider helping him out with some funding for the sequel) here at Kotaku. Couldn't take my eyes off of it -- very Burton-eques.
And if you haven't seen the The Appendix -- a very interstitial quarterly journal of experimental and narrative history -- stop by their blog and marvel at all the jewels out there on the internet in their "Weekly Reading" sections along with the Journal's own excellent articles in the current issue.
